Send us your favourite quotes please
As part of the National Year of Reading 2012, Mandurah Libraries will be running a fun activity based on quotes at the 2012 Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest. Our activity is called Quote me! and....
we need your help!
Please send us your favourite quotes.
We need the details of who said or wrote the quote wherever possible. In addition to the usual utterances of famous people, we’d also love to include your favourite lines from books, poems or movies, great song lyrics, or anything else that means something to you.
We are after a wide range of inspiring, uplifting, thought-provoking or humorous quotes.
They can be on any topic but extra thanks to anyone who can source some on the theme of action sports (so wake boarding, waterskiing, freestyle motocross, BMX and skateboarding) to tie in with this highlight of the 2012 Crab Fest program. Please don’t send quotes that are insulting to any individual or group of people and remember they must be suitable for use at a family event.
Then come along and visit the National Year of Reading and Mandurah Libraries team during Channel 7 Mandurah Crab Fest on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th of March. Peruse the whole range of quotes collected from our community, select one you like to take away and wear, and maybe spot someone else in the crowd wearing the quote you contributed.
Please leave your quotes as comments on this blog or email them to Deidre.Robb@mandurah.wa.gov.au with Quotes in the subject line. Many thanks for your help.
Next time you are in Falcon eLibrary and Community Centre, look around and up to see the quotes that are part of the building including this one by Groucho Marx that makes many a visitor stop, read and smile:
